Here, r = 20/ 2 cm = 10 cm 

Height = 30 cm 

Circumference of the base of the 

frame = 2πr 

= 2π × 10 cm = 20π cm 

Height of the frame = 30 cm 

Height of the cloth needed for covering the frame 

(including the margin) = (30 + 2.5 + 2.5) cm = 35 cm 

Also, breadth of the cloth = circumference of the base of the frame. 

∴ Area of the cloth required for covering the lampshade = length × breadth 

= 35 × 20π cm2 = 35 × 20 × 22 7 cm2 = 2200 cm2 Ans.
